Dead right. In both the new books I've read, 2017 and 2019, they say that too, and all my rheum.-docs too, web too.I DO have the pressure points but have never been tested using them. I think they consider using that test outdated and have other ways of determining whether or not you might fall into the fibro category.
When my primary discovered high blood pressure (in my case probably caused by the pain) and in the end it turned out I have severe genetic dyslipidemia and atherosclerosis I hated that, because it made me feel older. Sad for a week. Need to take 5 meds for that now, but blood pressure seems to be normalising, praps cuz of more relaxation and autogenic training. All 3 men on my mother's side had heart attacks, so I'm now glad we found that in time. I'm still not sure of lungs either, being short of breath, panting when I overdo energy-stints. But now I'm doing Wim Hof's breathing exercise that's getting a bit better. That'd be the only specialist left I haven't been to.What I mean is that I was given a hard, cold look at an issue I don't want to face--lung damage. And even that doesn't solidify it for me--raised yet another question about whether or not my lung issue is contributing to my pain--especially in my thighs/bones. UGH.
